it is small 11" it is for my parkzone brick my motor fried last night though so whats a no go till monday


I made a mistake on the fuse so I dat to recut but all in all it only took 40 min to cut recut sand and glue

hobby king sent me the wrong motor props so I can not even go brushless on the DSM2 6-channel Ultra Receiver but monday I hope to get the replacement motor have some vids of her flying


I have a question if the fuse is 11" what should the wing size be is there a proper ratio or just what ever I want?

I had thought this one would be about 20 to 30 inches long.
